Nose
Malty. Wholewheat bread. Weetabix. Freshly squeezed orange. Cheerful.
Palate
Nervous with a spicy kick.A bowl of exotic fruit.Pineapple, pomegranate.
Finish
The alcohol weighs a bit too much. Slightly burning.Pepper if not chilli.
Comment
This whisky definitely needs water to extinguish the fire. Would have benefited from a bottling at a lower strength.

Clean,with some sweet spice.

Rich,embracing and very pleasant.
Comment
Another beauty from an independent which excels in this field.
